Biotech firm Crucell delisted on April 12

Biotechnology firm Crucell will be delisted from the Amsterdam and Swiss stock exchanges on April 12 following its takeover by US pharmaceuticals company Johnson & Johnson.

Johnson & Johnson bought the Leiden-based firm for some €1.75bn in February and now controls almost 99% of the shares outstanding. The US firm will now embark on a buy-out procedure to mop up the remaining shares.
